Curbside Question: What Was Your Most Embarrassing Breakdown?


I saw this yesterday.  Talking with the driver, he had just let a customer out of the car in front of the door; backing up to the curb is when this happened.  He was very thankful he had been alone and traveling at a low speed.


To make matters worse for him, this was directly in front of Union Station in Kansas City – not exactly a low volume area with the trains, mail distribution center, museums, and related pedestrian traffic.

As my mind wandered, it formulated a question:  What was your most embarrassing breakdown?  For me, it was when the gas tank fell off my ’63 Ford Galaxie near the house of this girl I was rather sweet on at the time, although I did chronicle another one earlier today.
